Mandated Reporting

In my experience with college students the legal requirements of mandated reporting of suspicion of child abuse and neglect is mostly unknown. One positive outcome from the recent events at Penn State is to bring public recognition to both the legal requirements and the moral obligations of all persons to protect children from abuse. Many legislatures are reviewing the mandated reporting statutes to determine their efficacy in light of these recent revelations.

The video below is a good basic introduction to the issue of mandated reporting.
